This briefing sets out the evidence on integration, and suggests how government should better approach and design policy in this area.

Three broad messages for integration policy are that first, the responsibility for a cohesive society rests on all individuals and communities. Second, that integration applies to a wide range of institutions and relationships. The various ‘domains’ of integration include socioeconomic, political, cultural, spatial and interpersonal, and should be more clearly distinguished in policymaking so that interventions can be better designed and measured for their success.Third, we cannot build a cohesive society where inequality and discrimination continue to affect peoples’ opportunities and how citizens interact with one another.
